Shape: Fireball
Duration: 35 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
As I was driving my 18 wheeler across route 60 east in Lake Wales I noticed a huge orange ball of fire ascending from the trees north of me.

At first I thought it was a fighter jet but I know it couldn't have been because it was moving straight up and it was completely quiet. Within 35 seconds it was out of sight.

I've never seen anything like this before.
